Actress Iwa Moto couldn’t hide her sadness after being informed about the passing of her stepdaughter Yzabel Ablan, the daughter of her former husband Mickey Ablan.
Through her social media post, Iwa dedicated a message to Yzabel who reportedly passed away due to her illness.
Mickey’s current partner, Pepito Manatolo Star Janna Dominguez announced the sad news to her fans on October 7.
According to Iwa, she considers Yzabel as her firstborn despite not being her biological mother.
“My little butterfly. Thank you. Still can’t find words to say other than I love you so much and I will miss you. See you in my dreams, my little warrior.. watch over us anak. Mommy loves you so much,” said Iwa.
“To all the people asking. Yzabel is my 1st born daughter. And yes hindi ako ang biological mom nya. I was her stepmom for a couple of years. Pero i know in my heart na mahal na mahal ko sya kahit di ako ang nag luwal sakanya sa mundong to. Sya ang 1st ko sa madaming bagay. Tinuruan nya akong maging mommy,” she added.
She also posted several photos of Yzabel together with her.
In her past post, Yzabel revealed that she had several illnesses, including Lupus, which is very hard to treat.
It can be recalled that in 2012, Iwa and Mickey admitted that they were married in 2009.
The two separated in March 2011.
